You know a group that's not listed...

AniDB is a user driven database and every user can add new groups. So if you know a group that's not yet in AniDB, we encourage you to add it. We also ask you to include as much info as possible when adding a new group, it's for all users' benefit.

Where can I add groups?

You can find the add group link at the bottom of the grouplist. Once you click it you're on the "Add Group" page. There's a lot of info you can input here.

Basic info you should include when adding a group

Name

Name of the group.
for example: AnimeOne

Shortname

The tag of the group
for example: AonE

Optional Info

We'd like you to add this info sooner or later to the episode since some other users will benefit from your work.

URL

A link to the group's website. Do not enter their BT tracker URL here! For further info refer to our Linking guideline.

Email/IRC data

Official email address of the group.

Pic

The Url to Pic allows you to add a picture for this anime. It will be displayed together with the anime info. You can use the Upload a Pic function upload a picture directly from your hdd to the AniDB server. You could enter a complete URL to a picture here, but the previous method is preferred, because it ensures that the pic stays available and is loaded directly from our server. The function generates short image names such as 1234.jpg. After uploading a picture, copy this imagename as-is into the URL to Pic field (don't add http:// or anything).

  • the recommended size for pictures is 300x400
  • don't use animated pics
  • there is no size limit, but the picture should stay under 100KB, if possible

If the pic is a banner with a size of 500x200 the suggested solution besides resizing is to rotate it by 90°!
